(Neb)-Two Months Later, Drug Search Results In Arrests
CHADRON - It's taken two months, but two Chadron residents have finally been arrested on drug charges stemming from a search of their apartment.
Chadron police officer Matt Freeman says a citizen report of an odor of marijuana on October 29th led officers to an apartment where they contacted the renters, 33-year old Cassie Owen and 28-year old Colin Ladeaux.
Freeman says the officers also noticed the apparent smell of marijuana from inside the apartment and conducted a search, seizing marijuana paraphernalia and an eyeglass container with several items
associated with methamphetamine use.
The seized items were sent to the Nebraska State Crime Lab for analysis, but it took until Dec 30 before the results were returned. Officer Freeman says all the items tested positive for meth, at which point Owen and Ladeaux were arrested for possession of meth and jailed.
Freeman says the Chadron Police Department encourages citizens to provide information on illegal drugs or any other crime to local law enforcement or Nebraska Crime Stoppers.
